Obama Bypasses Congress on Immigration Yet Again

The Associated Press reports the Obama Administration has proposed a new immigration rule change:

The Obama administration wants to allow some spouses of high-skilled immigrants to work in the United States, the departments of Homeland Security and Commerce announced Tuesday.

The rule change, which is set to be published in the Federal Register later this week, would affect spouses of as many as 100,000 holders of H-1B high-skilled visas.

This comes amid an ongoing debate within Congress and across America about how to go about immigration reform.  Conservatives have consistently, and rightfully, that President Obama does not enforce current law.  With this latest move, he is bowing to the pressure of immigration reform groups advocating for unilateral action by the president:

Immigration advocates have been pushing Obama to make substantive changes to immigration laws, including halting all deportations until and unless Congress acts on a comprehensive immigration bill. The rule proposed Tuesday would not impact deportations, but could at least partially satisfy requests from the tech industry for the government to make it easier to attract and keep foreign workers trained in science, technology, engineering and math.
